"I went back home with two black guys." - LOOSE LUCY

"She's got box back Netty,
Freight pickers on the vine,
working undercover with
a four hog tie, that's my girl,
that's my rider." - LOVELIGHT (I still don't know the correct lyrics for this tune)

YES!! THANK YOU. I have..

"She's got box, back Betty
great big enourmous thighs
blah blah blah..."

I hadn't thought of this lyric...help please. This may be improvised. Is it written anywhere officially?

Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Jerry regarding Pigpen's rendition of "Lovelight"

"But, like, I have no idea where he got that thing he used to sing (during "Lovelight"): 'She got box back nitties and great big noble thighs, working undercover with a boar hog's eye.' Don't ask me--I don't know what the fuck that's all about! It's some weird mojo shit or something." (Jerry Garcia, 1993 Golden Road Annual)
